Step 1

Set the EGG for indirect cooking with the convEGGtor at 375°F/190°C. If desired, add some pecan chips for some extra smokiness.

Step 2

Remove the thighs from the packaging and place on a cutting board designated for poultry. Trim any excess fat on the thighs and season each side with a hefty dose of Big Green Egg Sweet and Smoky seasoning.

Step 3

Cut the jalapeño peppers in half lengthwise and remove the seeds and veins. Fill each half with cream cheese and sprinkle a touch of all-purpose rub on top.

Step 4

Place the stuffed jalapeño peppers cheese side down in the center of each chicken thigh and form the meat around the pepper. Next, wrap each thigh with 2 strips of bacon.

Step 5
